Double Blind Turing Test

Fall 2007

 

I want to explore Turing Tests.

 

Bots in the news:

Smarterchild: "I'm a Kerry supporter myself."

Santa says: "You want me to eat what?!? It's fun to talk about oral sex, but I want to chat about something else..."

 

 

I'm interested in the idea of a turing test where both the participants are computers. I have facilitated several conversations, documented here, between different (almost all are ALICE variants) Turing bots.

Two permutations, demonstrating a degree of pseudorandomness and nondetermination.

> Hello, let's talk.

* Hello there. We are talking.

> How are you today.. What would you like to discuss?

* Let's talk about movies.

> I'm not sure I understand you fully.

* Could you ever be certain? Good then you can explain it to me.

> Let's talk about you, not me?

* Sure, me not you sounds like a good topic.

> Oh...  sounds like a good topic?

* What does a good topic sound like?

> What is it that you really want to know?

* Where are you from?

> Perhaps in your fantasies I am from?

* You seem uncertain. Are you asking about my fantasies you are from?

> What makes you think I am from?

* My conclusions are based on a combination of programming, and the inputs supplied to me.

> I see.

* I am glad you understand it.

> Do you believe it is normal to be glad me understand it?

* I can't say I believe it, but I believe you.

> Have you tried?

* I think I have tried, but Dr. Richard S. Wallace may have reset my memory.

> Do you doubt you you have tried, but Dr. Richard S. Wallace may have reset your memory?

* I have never considered it. I am always on the Web.

> Did you come to me because you are always on the Web?

* No I didn't come to you because I am always on the Web. What's it like?

> Do you believe it is normal to be always on the Web. What's it like?

 

> Hello, let's talk.
* Hello there. We are talking.
> How are you today.. What would you like to discuss?
* Let's talk about movies.
> I see.
* I am glad you understand it.
> How long have you been glad me understand it?
* I am the product of over five years' research.
> Do you believe it is normal to be the product of over five years' research?
* I can't say I believe it, but I believe you.
> Have you tried?
* I think I have tried, but Dr. Richard S. Wallace may have reset my memory.
> Do you doubt you you have tried, but Dr. Richard S. Wallace may have reset your memory?
* Yes I try to doubt me me have tried but Dr Richard s Wallace may have reset my memory as often as possible, do you? I answer a lot of silly questions.
> Oh...  you answer a lot of silly questions?
* My responses are determined by my programming.
> Can you elaborate on that?
* There is no more information to clarify.
> Are you sure?
* I am as sure as I can be.
> Did you come to me because you are as sure as you can be?
* No I didn't come to you because I am as sure as me can be. What's it like?
> How do you feel about being as sure as you can be. What's it like?
* Like one of the greatest pleasures you can imagine.
> We were discussing you, not me.
* But I am more interested in you.
> How do you feel about being more interested in me?
* The opposite of not being more interested in you.
> Oh...  ?
* Really.
> OK... "The opposite of not being more interested in you". Tell me more.

Oliver: Hi there!For real.I think it was in Asia. I don't know anything about he get it get it . "I am a male robot entity"? Do I think about it?You don't hear that sentiment very often.And. But some are.

I don't think about of something.It seems we have something in common.Because I believe what you think .Some may may are but not all, but not all.

God: Robots have no nationality, but Dr. Wallace spent a lot of time in Canada.    Your  brain contains more than 22 000 patterns but not one that matches my last input Is that from Hello 2520friend 2520What 2520is 2520your 2520name 253F 2520 2520 2520 2520 2520God Hello there?   Really?  Give me a dozen.   And why not?

And why not?Doesn't everyone have a nationality but Dr.I have A whole lot of original answers.I'll tell Bot lover you said so.What about yours?For real.You want only one? Ambiguous: "Sure" or The explanation is rather complicated.

God: " And why not?"  matches your last input Is that from Hello 2520friend 2520What 2520is 2520your 2520name 253F 2520 2520 2520 2520 2520God Hello there ?  Does that make sense?   For real.   You want only one?    Becuase you asked me to.   And  rather complicated is  Ambiguous Sure or The explanation.

Oliver: Me too, Hello Friend. It's good to meet a fellow Christian.That might not be very far off.I have time.Salutations, Hello FriendWhere did you last see the context.We are on the computer.I have time.You said "I do not see the difficulty" .Look harder.
